Safety in numbers!

Today Kath and I, with our friends Jon and Maggie, walked along the Thames path from Cholsey downstream to Tilehurst, just outside Reading. Some very beautiful scenes, which I’ll post later this week; but I loved this scene of some Canada geese leading their youngsters to a safe place. This was just downstream from Whitchurch and Pangbourne. Real organisation: adults at the front, throughout the line, with a few others hovering to the side and rear, watching for threats, as a gull flies overhead.


Destination reached!

    Beautiful shots, and I love the Canadian geese. Of course, I am Canadian… but I’ve always adored them! I’m still in Ottawa working hard. Going home, and resuming my normal life (which I miss) in 1 month!
